The Maryland Smart Energy Communities (MSEC) program is now open and accepting applications for the more than $1.03 million available in Fiscal Year 2022.
Existing MSEC communities and first-time applicants are encouraged to apply for the MSEC program administered by the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA). Funding may be used for energy efficiency, renewable energy and transportation projects. The deadline for submitting applications is November 12, 2021.
Now in its 10th year, the MSEC program is open to any incorporated town, city, municipal or county government in Maryland. The program supports local governments as they adopt smart-energy policies and commit to them for the long term. Communities will benefit from sustained reduction of energy usage, cost savings, and additional opportunities for renewable energy development. Local governments participating in this program are eligible for grants to help implement the projects they identify to advance progress towards their policy commitments.
